The Russian Church is the most rapidly growing organization in Russia

“Every year our Church becomes more powerful and plays more important role in our society. Today the Russian Orthodox Church is the most rapidly growing religious organization in Russia: for the last ten years the number of its legal entities has grown for 25%,” Silantyev said in his interview with the Russkaya Planetawebsite.

According to the expert, Muslims and Buddhist achieved growth of 20%, while “Protestants stagnated in a range of one percent.”

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
